David Price makes a very nice double barrel swivel breech flinter. I think you can get it in caplock as well....that is, if a budget doesn't matter.

Pedersoli makes the kodiak side by side. I don't know for sure of any modern inline doubles being made.

Not sure how accurate a modern inline "double barrel" would be.

Well I think a double barrel inline would be fine if configured like an open sight shotgun.

I'm not sure how a double barrel would work with a scope. I've never seen a double barrel center fire with a scope.

The Pedersoli kodiak side by side is the only one I know of. The problem with manufacturing any double rifle is figuring out how to get both barrels to fire to the same point of impact without a ton of hand fitting and trial and error firing. A scope would be no more problem sighting in than iron sights with that regard. I've considered buying a Kodiak in the past but never have. Not sure I've ever read a report of anybody tring one with sabots and modern bullets. I guess what keeps me from tring one is the fact that I only ML hunt to get the extra 2 weeks of deer hunting. My present single shot will get me by for that.

I did see recently though that somebody is making a double barrel 45-70 that has some sort of manual adjustment to change the barrels alignment so you could get different loads to shoot together from both barrels. Now that is interesting. Not sure I'd hunt with it but would be fun to play with in a cartridge gun.

Wonder if you could make one with a revolver action and single rifled barrel like an Old Army.

I have a Pendersoli Kodiak side-by-side in 58 caliber. It has double, flip-up in-line sights (so you can set one for the left barrel and one for the right). The gun uses double side-hammers, one for each barrel (although they are arranged so the cap fires directly into the powder chamber instead of having to travel through an angled "pipe" like most side-hammers, hence it is virtually "in-line").

Although the over-all weight of the gun is high, that never really bothered me that much. It was the recoil that bothered me! Talk about breaking into a cold sweat just thinking of touching that cannon off! Of course, the recoil problem was my fault. I shot hand-poured lead 620 grn Civil War Minnie balls in front of 120 grns of FFg. With just a brass butt-plate on the stock, the recoil was EXTREME.

In fact, that's why I wussed out and stopped using it. A nice 50 inline is a sweet-shooter in comparison!

Here's an old picture of the gun:

BSK,

So do you have to flip a rear sight own and the other up after the 1st shot? It looks to only have 1 front sight so seems that you could only have 1 rear sight available at a time. If that's the case, you couldn't get two instant shots like yau can with a classic African double cartridge rifle.

Yep, 58 caliber full-bore bullets are going to give some serious recoil!

That is exactly right. You have one rear blade flipped up and the other down (one front post). After shooting one barrel, you flip that blade down and the other up (one is about a half inch in front of the other). For an open-sighted gun, it is amazingly accurate. I could shoot 3-inch groups at 100 yards. Anything beyond that distance and those giant Minnie balls dropped like a rock though.

Yes, like bring tears to your eyes serious.

Bet that thing smacked your cheek bone pretty good too! Would a plain round ball have worked? Quite a bit lighter.

Luckily, the way the stock is cut, it doesn't kick the face at all. But if you hold it a little wrong, it has the potential to break your collarbone.

It doesn't have the slow twist rate of a good round-ball gun (1:66). It has a 1:48 twist, which in that caliber, is designed for conicals.

Had a buddy that used to have a old school double, it weighed about 50lbs seemed like! Got another buddy that carries two m.l.'s for a second shot.

Dang BSK!...I target shoot 535 grain .577 minies with 45 to 55 grains 2fg powder. The Civil War standard load ran between 60 and 70 grains with a 500 grainer and It'll give you a pretty good thumpin. Can't imagine shooting the load you were using.

By the way.....nice old pic.
